easy sheet pan meatloaf with potatoes

This is a remarkably easy meatloaf recipe with tons of beefy flavor and a sweet sauce that will fill the family and not the dish washer.  Using 93% lean or leaner ground beef means minimal grease and plenty of lean protein for the family while the mix of red and sweet potatoes adds splashes of color and a great side dish at the same time.
